ABSTRACT

A 77-year-old male was admitted to our hospital because of chronic cough. Chest computed tomography showed centrilobular nodules, bronchiectasis, and an anterior mediastinal mass. An anterior mediastinal mass excision and a surgical lung biopsy were performed, leading to diagnoses of thymoma and cellular/destructive bronchiolitis obliterans, respectively. The patient was treated with a macrolide antibiotic, but the respiratory dysfunction and imaging findings gradually worsened. We herein report a rare case of cellular/destructive bronchiolitis obliterans associated with thymoma.
